Playing Catch Up...

Hi!!!
I haven't blogged for a week and seems like i've got so much to show'n'tell! So i hope this post wont be too boring for you all!!

Last night Matty and I built the baby's cot!!! It looks so cute! Im so happy we built it! Here are some piccies...

As you can see from the photos... we still have a lot of organising to do in that room! So im glad we've started early!!!

For christmas I recieved some money from my parents and grandparents so with it i bought myself a desk so I can have a scrap area!! Its awesome! I love having everything out and not having to pack it all away after every time I scrap!!

The little shelving unit on top of the desk is actually a CD and DVD shelf! I bought it because I knew if I lay it horizontal, it would be prefect to store my scrapbooking goodies (and it is!!)

I was very excited to see that in this month's Scrapbooking Memories Magazine (Vol 9 No 9) I got this layout published...

"smile"

I was also so excited to see this layout published again with a great little comment about it!! Thank you!!! It really made my day...

"fun together"


Also around christmas time i recieved a parcel from this talented lady... Esther!
It was such a lovely surprise!! Thank you Esther for the RAK! I cant wait to use all the goodies in it!!!

Im still nannying little Jade, who is growing up so fast!! She's 17 months old now!! And such a little character, and she gives the best cuddles!! Such a sweet baby! Here are a couple of photos I took with my camera phone (so as you can see they aren't the best quality!)

This is Jade in a cute little outfit with her cat 'boot'...
Jade on her new couch! She loves it! This is her relaxing and watching baby babble on tv...
My friends Daria and Marty came over with their baby boy Kaia the other day!! Kaia is such a cutie and such a good baby! It was great to hang out with you guys!! Come over again SOON!!!
I hope you are all having a lovely day!! Im off. Hopefully i'll get motivated to scrapbook this afternoon!!
If you havent already... dont forget to vote if you think we are having a boy or a girl (in the side bar>>>) and dont forget to leave a comment so I know who has voted & what they are thinking!!!

Not boring at all! It's fun to see the baby preparations and your great new scrap area. Besides, it's your blog - blog whatever you want!

You guys look sooo happy! I am so happy for you both!

The CD thing for the desk is an awesome idea. I'll have to start looking for something like that.
